Special guest DJ HUBZZ to cumbia the night away.
An ordinary evening in a small Texas town becomes a grisly nightmare when a horde of flesh-eating zombies goes on the prowl. Cherry (Rose McGowan), a go-go dancer, and Wray (Freddy Rodriguez), her ex-lover, band together with other survivors in a no-holds barred effort to escape the carnage. The odds become a bit more even when Cherry, who lost her leg to a hungry ghoul, gets a machine-gun appendage and lets the bullets fly. With Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton, Michael Biehn.
"Gloopy and outrageous, this schlock horror tribute is pure trash... in the best possible sense." (BBC.com)
"Rodriguez just wants viewers to have a good time, and it comes across in the film -- which is an extremely affectionate homage to seventies exploitation films." (IONCinema.com)
